Forum: millionbooks Subject: Re: German texts

Thanks for submitting an error report on this. We are going through two things currently to improve the texts:
1. We have moved the texts to a new beta cluster (which currently needs some new software to allow easy metadata changes)
2. The Million Books Project is reprocessing all of their books to insure quality. We hope to get an infusion of new books and corrected old books in January.

As for the volume thing, we haven't really figured out a good way to link books of a similar series yet. We hope that as we improve our book collection, these things will get easier.

Also, there are some German books in the new Candian Libraries collection. My favorite (though I don't know German) is this old book on syphilis:

I wish I knew German so I could read it- it seems fun.

Bear with us, we are giving our text collection some much needed love this fall and coming spring.
